CPPSR develops, implements and facilitates customized instructional programs to promote enhanced public services. Through specialized curricula of professional development, education and training for public servants, CPPSR supports the economic and community development of participating cities, towns and regions.
The Project has two divisions, Municipal and Regional which serves CT public servants, and International, which brings best theory and practices in public administration to delegations of public servants from other nations. Additionally the US-China Center, an affiliate under the CPPSR umbrella, provides similar programming targeted at public servants of China.
THE TWO PROJECT DIVISIONS:
CT's 169 cities and towns are endowed with powers of home rule, and each typically maintains separate staff for various key aspects of local government. CPPSR works and collaborates with associations and agencies that reach and represent public servants throughout the state:

CPPSR has hosted several groups of public administrators from Oyo State, Nigeria (and is currently in exploratory discussions with other nations) for specially tailored programs showcasing best practices and theory in public service delivery. Making use of CCSU's expert faculty as well as exemplary field practitioners, general and specific areas of instruction are targeted based on the identified needs of the visiting cohort.
